My family used to go to Red Robin. Pretty good about my very severe allergies to wheat, barley, cashew, and pistachio. I always got the plain chicken breast which is pretty good.

The server was really helpful! They bring you a tablet that helps you choose what to eat. So nice! And french fries from a dedicated frier...yum!

They wash their lettuce in a wheat based solution to stop it from browning. So I thought I was going to be okay but got horribly sick. Never eating there again.

Ate here 4 months ago got extremely sick as did my Mother in law. The restaurant was very dirty. Love Red Robin but after getting so sick I'm not going back. The Gluten-free buns are the worst. Extremely dry. The staff doesn't understand about cross contamination. Save your stomach.

While they offer gluten free options, and do attempt to make sure things are indeed gluten free, we've run into cross contamination issues. Not all the time, but enough to make us not go back.

we eat at robin frequently. visiting from the east coast, and ordered something ... the shift manager came out to double check my order, because one of the sauces may not have been gluten free.

I was so happy to have that level of care.

I was so spoiled!! Best eating out experience I've had since I took gluten out of my diet! They were knowledgeable about the gf issue, I was even asked if I was allergic specifically, and they altered my burger to truly gf, which is good because I would have gotten glutened otherwise. Apparently their guacamole is not safe by the way. On a family celebration night, this took all the stress out I usually go through and we all had a very nice time

I took my girls here. They do not have Celiacs Disease as I do. They ordered regular burgers and fries and I ordered GF with assurances from the waitress that the food was truly GF. Within 30 minutes of eating, I was very sick and knew I had been contaminated. Very frustrating!

The new GF buns are yummy! My waitress was familiar with what is gluten free and I had a super yummy burger and fries. The waitress informed me that the seasoning they put on the fries has gluten so she told the kitchen not to season my fries :) I got to actually enjoy a burger and I did not get sick!

I enjoyed eating here. They have a dedicated fryer for gluten free fries and an allergy alert that they give to the kitchen. The online allergy menu is cool and lets you choose your allergens and if you are comfortable with cross contamination or not. I got the spinach dip and chips and my non-gf boyfriend tried a gf burger. We both enjoyed our food and when they brought more endless fries for us, they reassured us they were the gluten free ones without me having to ask. I felt safe eating here and had no ill effects afterwards.

We have gone to Red Robin many times since they opened. And of all the restaurants around us, this is the one where I have NOT had an accidental gluten issue. Their GF bun is good. They have a dedicated fryer for fries (regular and sweet potato). Many of the staff are knowledgeable about GF and the management team is very eager to help when they hear someone has Gluten issues. This is a regular stop for us, because I know I can eat here without having to worry.

I informed the server that I needed a gluten free menu, she showed me how to scan the QR code and review. I got a burger and fries, so yummy!! The bun was gluten free and you know, they aren't the best, lettuce would be better. No reaction!!

Online allergen menu that allows you to select what you’re allergic to and then it tells you what on the menu you can order. Good Gluten Free bun and a separate GF fryer.
